11/17/16 Grif.Net – Gone

A bill collector knocked on the door of a country =
debtor down in the delta.

 

"Is =
Fred home"? he asked the woman who answered the =
door.

 

"Sorry," the woman replied. "Fred’s =
gone for cotton."

 

The next =
week, the collector tried again.

 

"Is =
Fred here today"?

 

"No, =
sir," she said. "I’m afraid Fred has gone for more =
cotton."

 

When he returned the third week, he humphed =
sarcastically, "I suppose Fred is out looking for cotton =
again"?

 

"No," the woman answered solemnly. =
"Fred died yesterday."

 

Suspicious =
that he was being avoided, the collector decided to wait a week and =
investigate the cemetery himself. But sure enough, there was poor Fred’s =
tombstone, with this inscription:

 

"Gone, =
but not for cotton."
